Bangarang!

“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.”
J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

We need more lost boys and girls. They live life as if there is no tomorrow and yearn always for adventure. Change, fun, happiness, and a hunger for everything.

I remember watching “Hook” when Rufio came flying down the ramps on his skateboard and yelled, “Bangarang!” So much freedom and fearlessness.

Too many of us live with a fear inside that we need to battle. It’s frightening peering deep inside oneself and trying to overcome those fears. They wrap about the heart and embrace us in waves of anxiety and hesitation. Few want to leap off that cliff without knowing how far the fall is.

It is one of those fears, the fear of the unknown or of other, that keeps many from embracing a world of peace and love. I would argue no single person is free of that one fear. Fear of other encompases many things – cultural fear, religious fear, spiritual fear, etc.

We need more lost boys and girls that are fearless and embrace the other in a spirit of adventure and pure unadulterated joy. We need more lost boys and girls to fly into the unknown, reaching further into that depth to encompass the world in the joy and love it will bring.

We need more Peter Pans that aren’t afraid of anything.

Blarg….something, something…Friday

“Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning do to do afterward.” Kurt Vonnegut

I’m hoping today is a day filled with laughter, because I am bone exhausted and unsure how I’m going to make it through. Massive brain fog all week means being even more watchful for mistakes at work. Actually, I have to be watchful of everything I do, which makes everything even more exhausting.

Every now and then, I get down. Not emotionally down, but physically down. I push and push and push and then SNAP – I break. I have to rest…do nothing. Take a huge step back. BUT as any parent can tell you, that is not always possible.

You have to laugh through it, otherwise it will bury you.

I love this video. The song. I’m not sure why, but watching the teen bring rain and take out ‘the man’ is – hmmm – I think empowering is almost too strong a word, but it really makes me feel great, power speaking.

I need to create myself an empowerment music list. Something to help my motivation, keep my mood up, my anxiety down. Something to help me feel like the strong person I KNOW I have hiding inside me of.

Maybe it’s time to start listing them as I find them.

hmmm…maybe.
